Insert Weekend at Bernie’s Joke Here

Paw-Paw never wanted to step foot in the suburbs. Those grid blocks with identical yards, each with an SUV parked in front. Paw-Paw never believed that was how folks should live, so why should he have to spend eternity there?

In Still the River Runs, Promethean Theatre’s current production, two sons are on a bumbling mission to secretly relocate their deceased father’s remains from the family plot (which has since been surrounded by gated communities) to a treasured hunting site that he loved while alive. Of course, even great plans can fall apart when you’re toting around your father’s corpse. (Spoiler alert: expect hijinks!) Catch Still the River Runs at 8 p.m. in the Black Box Theatre at Nova (3301 College Ave., Davie), before it expires on November 2. Call 786-317-7580, or visit theprometheantheatre.org. Tickets range $5 to $25.
Thursdays-Sundays. Starts: Oct. 23. Continues through Nov. 2, 2008
